Richard's Family Life Merit Badge Project

The Straley family has been busy working in the our yard the past few weeks DESPITE the snow last week!! Would someone tell Olde Man Winter that it's May?!! Enough already! Geesh!

Richard, our oldest boy, is working on his Family Life merit badge for Boys Scouts (Troop 469 in Parker, Colorado). He decided to plan out and plant our flower bed in the front yard. Thank goodness he waited a week!

Yesterday, he finally got the chance to plant his plan into action (with a little advice from his Dad of course). He did a fantastic job!

The yard and flowers are my sanity every summer! I enjoy sipping my first cup of coffee out on the back deck watching the humming birds and waiting for the bumble bees to wake up! We have lots of outdoor projects planned this year so I'll be posting more photos as we progress. Now where is that tube of Ben-Gay??? Maybe Richard has it!

Wishing everyone a Happy Spring!!
